    The Worcester Art Museum's distinguished collection of European paintings numbers over 478 works. It was the first American Museum to acquire works by a number of leading masters including Hogarth, Monet, Gauguin and Redon. The collection is particularly strong in Italian paintings, 18th-century British paintings and French paintings from the 18th through the early 20th century. The painting collection is complemented by extensive holdings of European prints and drawings from the Renaissance to Contemporary and a collection of photographs that traces the history of the medium from the early 1840s to the present.
